Having problems with your Campbell Hausfeld PW1750 Electric Pressure Washer ?

The power electric was run over by mower -unit has no electical power


Answers :

You could bring it to a repair shop where they will probably install a new power cord. The now-shortened power cord can be fitted with a new plug, and used as before instead - for a fraction of the cost.

From what I can tell, the pressure washer is a 120 volt type. Purchase a replacement plug - called a "cord cap". The most common configuration is pictured below:

steve_con_4.jpg

A 15 amp / 125 volt male cord cap made by Leviton.

Your's is likely rated at 125V/ 15A (like the one above). This means there's 2 parallel blades and a ground pin - like most grounded plugs in your home. If unsure, bring the cut off section of the power cord to a hardware store to select an identical cord cap. You'll want to purchase the type of cord cap that has terminal screws - not the type without screws. The packaging of the cord cap will indicate how much of the cord jacket and individual wire insulation to remove. A little more or less won't make it impossible to do - but don't deviate too much from these dimensions for the best results. Once the cord has been stripped correctly - Disassemble the cord cap body from the outer shell by removing the screws on the front. Loosen or remove the 2 screws at the cord grip end and slip the shell over the end of the power cord.

Bring the cord cap body to the cord. The body will have 3 screws. One each silver (or light colored), bronze (or dark colored) and green. Loosen all the screws - do not completely remove them. Twist all the strands of each wire so that they are bundled together and there are no stray wires sticking out. Do this for each white, black and green wires. The black wire will connect to the bronze colored screw, the white wire to the silver screw and the green to the green colored screw. You can either insert the stripped wires into the small holes at the back of the terminal screws, or wrap them around the screw terminals themselves. The best way is to wire from the back - but if you choose to wrap around the screws, be sure all the small wires are under the screw head. Tighten the screws and tug the wires one at a time to make sure they are held firmly in place.

Once satisfied that the wires are connected correctly and tight - slide the outer shell towards the cord cap body. Align the screws with the holes in the outer shell. The parts will only fit together one way - so don't try to force it together. Tighten the screws in the front and then install / tighten the screws at the cord end to grip the cord. This clamp should be firm - but not to the point of crushing the cord. Test in a ground fault protected outlet and you're done!

I hope this helps.. please rate this reply - thanks!

Opened door and unit did not have electrical power (lights did not come on either unit). Called serviceman. He stated there was no electricity to unit(s). Called electrican.

This dishwasher is older than most living people in this business. It works great except it is a 208 three phase unit. It is in St.Peter's church in New York Mills, MN. We bought it used during our remodel project in 1994 for a price of $800.00. That was our mistake. We had a converter installed to accomadate the 3 phase power supply. So we have this converter running 24 hours a day using up electricity and we use the dishwasher four times per year. I am wondering if we could replace the motor o

I have a Craftsman power washer model 580 752020. When I start it up, turn on the switch the electric motor runs fine until I either close the trigger to the spray nozzle or press the trigger for power spray. The electric motor just shuts down, if I take my finger off the pressure and let the water run with no presssure the motor runs fine. My question is this. Is the capasitator on the electric motor the probable cause and is there a way to check out the capasitator to see if it is malfuncti

WP DW Mod # GU1200XTLS0: this unit filled with water and just stopped running. I have power to the unit. The control panel does not light up at all. Its wierd that I have power to the board and all the wires seem to have power! No burnt spots and no burnt smell on the board.Hmmm! Door latch and switches all check ok. Oddly it seems like the line power to DW goes all the way thru the unit and back through the nutural wire. Could the motor windings be burnt out?

Our Dishwasher is not draining. We tried to run a test cycle and noticed there is no power. We checked the Electrical Panel and noticed that an unmarked breaker was tripped. We turned it on but still have no power. All other electrical items are working in the house. Is the power being cut off as a fail-safe function due to the water not draining? How do I fix the drain/pump? Please Help!

The unit is a Maytag model MDB5601AWW which it has recently began to lose power at the touch pad. The electrical breaker has been checked to confirm normal voltage. Additional investigation suggests that the unit can be reset by (1) disconnecting the power at the breaker, (2) disconnecting and reconnecting the ribbon cable that interfaces the touchpad with the control board. However, the problem reoccurs after a few normal wash cycles.


It sounds to me then that the display board or touchpad needs replacing,you havn't said that it's not doing it's cycles.so it's not causing any washing or cycle problems.i would replace the display board. ... Dishwashers

Kenmore Ultra Wash dishwasher model number 665.1374 or 665.1384 I am a technician. This unit does nothing. It has power and ground. I have tested the door switches. They test good. If I unplug the unit and plug it back in then it will run a drain cycle, at least that is what I think it is doing. The motor runs for about 4 minutes. Once it shuts off, there is no further response. No control indicators illuminate. No response from pushing any of the touch buttons.
